4.4
The Tabernacle building has a rich & storied history. Opened in 1910 as The Broughton Tabernacle; Dr. Leonard Gaston Broughton was the pastor and a physician. Dr. Broughton started the Georgia Baptist Medical Center and nursing school, which began as the Tabernacle infirmary with three beds. The Third Baptist Church was an active congregation with over 4000 members. The congregation relocated during the mid eighties and the building lay vacant until the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games, when it was converted into a House of Blues club.

After the Olympics, the building continued to operate as a music venue under a variety of different owners. The Tabernacle is currently operated by Live Nation.

  • A really funky and eclectic live music venue. Has a lot of charm and places to sit and relax before a show. The acoustics were great, particularly for the Head and the Heart. The ground floor standing room is nice but beware of standing in the two exit lanes; security is determined to keep them clear of people. Parking is a challenge, better to ride share.
  • Very cool staff. Very cool venue. One of the most awesome places for a company function. Had a great time and really enjoyed the food that was brought in for catering. Thanks for a great time!
